Patients can possess up to a 60-day supply of cannabis with a valid NY medical marijuana card. However, the prescribing healthcare provider can use their professional judgment and limit the amount of cannabis a patient can have.
Certified New York medical marijuana patients at least 21 can cultivate up to six cannabis plants — three immature and three mature female plants — at their private residence, but only for personal use.
In addition, designated caregivers 21 or older caring for a certified patient can cultivate the same number of mature and immature cannabis for the patient’s use. A designated caregiver can grow up to six plants per patient but cannot grow more than 12 plants at any time.
Once trimmed, a certified patient or caregiver can have up to five pounds of cannabis at their residence.
Recreational marijuana is legal in New York, and anyone at least 21 can possess up to three ounces of cannabis for personal consumption.
